Olberding {Wedding}

Alaska has few days like the one that we enjoyed for Leslie and Ryan’s wedding… it was hot, pure and simple. We Alaskans enjoy it, but always wilt a little in the heat.

The wedding was at the Forget Me Not Nursery in Indian, Alaska… and it was gorgeous! The caretakers have stunning flowerbeds and lots of gorgeous places for photos!

Then Leslie was there. He came up behind her, and it was sweet.

Leslie is so beautiful and porcelain pure, she looks like someone that could have originally come from Middle Earth.

 With a crew like these guys, sometimes it is hard to hold my camera steady while I giggle at the antics!

I love this shot. And photos like this are one reason why all Ambience Photography weddings come with two photographers…

It really was a bit hot in the greenhouse… but we had to keep the doors and windows closed to keep the bugs out!
